9/11/10 – poem, berries

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

opening the window
as I do every day
bright red berries cluster
atop the long bush outside
they must be so fleeting in this time of year I never took notice before
or my taking notice so fleeting I never saw them before

  1. Enjoyed the poem…perhaps we see things different and see more as we age my friend.

  2. Oh Charles, those are such wise words and I would not have it any other way!! Lovely poem Lawrence and the berries are just beautiful..love the color. Hope you have a great weekend. x

  3. Those last 2 lines there – few words here and there, BIG difference.. isn’t it?
    Observation stimulates the thought process.. no?
    Nicely written, Lawrence…
